Ah, come on, she’s hot! Can’t she get a do over for being Greek, blonde and hot? I think this should be up to a vote of the male viewers of the games, not the Greek government or the Olympics. More from the Huffington Post:
Voula Papachristou has been expelled from the Greek Olympic Team for a racist twitter comment, according to the Associated Press. The website Keep Talking Greece translated the offensive tweet by Papachristou (@papaxristoutj):
“With so many Africans in Greece… At least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat home made food!!!”
According to a report at Newser.com, you can bet on almost anything at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Sure, you can place a bet on Usain Bolt winning (or losing) the 100 meters and traditional stuff like that, but how about the really strange stuff? And by strange, I mean stuff that the guys in Vegas wouldn’t even think of, much less take a wager on.
Wanna bet whether it rains during the opening ceremony? There’s a London bookie who will take that.
Wanna bet there will be a picture taken sometime during the games of a British athlete eating a McDonald’s Big Mac? Yep, they’ll take that one too.
How about the Olympic Village running out of the 150,000 condoms it has in stock for horny athletes? Are you kidding? I’ll take that bet.
But the strangest bet of all? That a UFO will hover over the Opening Ceremony! You can get 1,000-to-1 odds on that happening, which is much less likely (apparently) than flamboyant London Mayor Boris Johnson accidentally lighting his hair on fire with the Olympic torch. Odds on that are 33-to-1.
Much more fun than betting a plain old roulette wheel I’d think.
Really? Crushing, sure. Demoralizing, perhaps. But 9/11? Uh, didn’t people DIE during that?
Now we know where the problem at Penn State is. Watch the video below.
The NCAA dropped the hammer on Penn State and former head football coach Joe Paterno this week. Fans were absolutely devastated by the unprecedented sanctions. But Penn State alumnus Tom Price of Factoryville, Penn., took it to the extreme. He told WNEP-TV in Scranton that he and his wife Sally equated the NCAA’s punishment to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Nearly 3,000 people died in those attacks.
“I just can’t put my arms around it,” said Price. “It was our 9/11 today. I just saw planes crashing into towers.”
